Create an itinerary including Victory Column (Siegessaule)
You can't help but notice the gigantic statue of the Roman goddess Victoria crowning the top of Victory Column (Siegessaule). It weighs 31 metric tons (34 tons) and is 67 m (220 ft) tall. Designed in 1864 to commemorate Prussia's military triumphs, the statue was not finished until 1873. Intended to honor victory in the German-Danish war, its completion ended up coming closer to Prussia's defeat of France. You're allowed to climb to the top of the tower, but the statue the locals call Golden Lizzy will still be above you. The ascent is strenuous and not recommended for those with mobility issues.

  • It’s a self-guided climb to the top: 285 stairs; only room for about 12 people on the top circle. Great views of Berlin but it’s a little scary being so high and outdoors. Cost: €3.50. Interesting...

  • A nice spot in the middle of Tiergarten There are also various statues arround the Victory column. I liked the underground path too.

  • Interesting place to visit. Going up and visiting the museum inside costs 3€. Only cash is accepted. Museum Shows of miniatures of over sight seeing objects around the world. The walk up is narrow with a lot of stairs. Nothing for people with leg issues.
  • For view only. Everything else is a bit well.... you'll see. But on a clear day it's a nice alternative to the TV tower. I guess the steps will be an issue for some but you are rewarded in the end.
